BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Jhonas Enroth stopped 29 shots to help the Buffalo Sabres remain on the fringe of the playoff race with a 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.
Christian Ehrhoff scored the lone goal, 17 seconds into the third period, when his fortunate carom off the end boards sneaked in behind Steve Mason. Buffalo (17-19-6) snapped a two-game skid and climbed into a tie with New Jersey for 10th in the Eastern Conference standings.
Enroth stopped 11 shots in the final period, including getting a piece of Wayne Simmonds' shot from the slot with 50 seconds remaining. For Enroth, it was his third career shutout and first since, Nov. 18, 2011.
The Flyers (17-21-3) lost their fourth straight, squandering an opportunity to jump a point ahead of the Sabres. They've lost four straight in regulation for the first time since Feb. 26-March 6, 2011.
